EcoKids: Raising Children Who Care for the Earth (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


Because schools cannot be relied upon to produce an Earth-friendly citizenry, the task falls to the parents. Yet even aware parents often lack the understanding and resources to take on such a task. This book addresses this gap by presenting a coherent plan that will help parents to foster love for nature, tack children the importance of environmental protection, and promote environmental values and inspire action -- actions that will last a lifetime. A hopeful and inspiring guide for parents, topics covered include ways to: avoid gloom and doom in favour of positive solutions; foster love and empathy for nature; develop environmental values; put values into action; help children to discover the roots of problems and be part of lasting solutions; walk the talk; counter the consumer culture, starting in your own home and community; generate hope and combat apathy. Each chapter includes an inspiring case study of a child who's making a difference, short pieces that highlight serious problems such as global warming, along with positive solutions that can be read aloud to children, and activities for children.

A resource guide lists helpful books, articles, videos and organisations.
